About this Tree



Not one tree, but two!

Potentially, that means you can name them both. Double prize? Perhaps, or I may redo this contest separately for the smaller tree at a later time for the additional prize.

This is a lemon tree. Known scientifically as Citrus limon.

I grew it from the seed of a Meyer Lemon purchased from the produce aisle at the grocery store. Will it also be a Meyer lemon? No, seeds always develop random qualities from their parents, although it may retain some of the qualities of a Meyer lemon.

This tree started growing indoors in early Winter of 2017. I grow it outside when the temperatures are warm, then it will be kept indoors again during winter because frost will kill a tropical tree like this.

One of the things I love about citrus trees is that when you pluck off a leaf it emits an intoxicating aroma similar to the fruit. Lemons are a wonderfully refreshing scent. Sometimes we use lemons when cleaning the kitchen sink and counters because it removes grease and repels insects and mold.

This tree will become a future bonsai tree. Next year, I'll consider transferring it to a training pot to further develop stronger spreading roots and a thicker trunk.

The light was dancing on the fence through the tree shadows. A rare vision. Climbing clematis in the foreground.

That's it for today.

Please comment below. I really do need a nickname for this tree.

quod uvam unus ( latin for "the sour one") when someone asks its name it will sound like your chanting a spell at them.


Lil pucker. Like it makes you pucker your lips!

Congratulations @edthecanadian, you are the winner of this contest, which earns you a prize of 1 SBD.

I am very grateful for your participation!

The Lemon tree pictured above will be nicknamed Li'l Pucker (I'm adding the slang phonetic mark to make it properly Southern style). Kind of reminds me of Li'l Abner and Meet the Fockers mixed into one. Until Pucker knocks out Li'l from the pot, I'll just consider Li'l Pucker their joint name for both trees.

Awesome,my high school counsiler was wrong-I am a winner!

I’m so horrible at naming things it's best I don't lol. I do hope you find something for it.

Bob and Lil' Bob.

Love the light show gif :)

Zest for Life! And Ditto I also love lemon. It has such a fresh smell. My favourite is using lemon essential oil in body butters or laundry liquid. Smells like sunshine!
